Good Morning….I feel like it is Christmas Eve….do you remember the feeling when you were a peep and you just could not wait to wake up for Christmas morning…..that was JUST THE BEST!  Well…that is me today as I am leaving to meet a fellow PAL….for let’s call some “continuing education”  😀

This is a little “something” for my dear friend Michelle. We are escaping away for 3 quick days to be HUGE sponges to learn. laugh and have FUN! (I call this my POST TAX SEASON Wife get-away for being the “queen” wife)….and John – he is off to go fishing way before you read this quick post 😀

Do you see the sentiment? It is super cute…RIGHT???? Well this is a NEW kid on the block! You know me, I just love sentiments sets and this just seems to do the trick for a sweet gesture!






I think that we forget the fact that we have so many ways to make smiles with adding a little “something ~ something” to a basic white box to bring a smile to ones face and a pitter -patter in their heart!

When I make things like this….I think of my Mom. My Mom was the QUEEN of making people feel special. She taught me that it is the extra little touches that make people feel special.

It truly does not take much extra time and the end result is a WIN ~ WIN for all. All I did was cut the DSP to 2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ and then matted it with Sweet Sugarplum just a wee bit larger, 2 5/8″ X 2 5/8″…add ribbon and then the fun!





Let’s chat about the FUN on TOP…this is from the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle…and guess what? This IS being carried over but not as a bundle. Just look at the fun elements of both the stamp set and the framelits…so why not save an extra 10% now? (I have the line up at the end of the post)

This is not only so on trend, it is just elegant with the details that it has and the sentiments…..need I say more – A KEEPER!






I would LOVE to get some comments going on ….do you like to fru-fru when you give something to someone? I must admit, the “inside” is not as important as the packaging to me….do you ever feel that way?

I think that is goes back to the Christmas thing….my favorite part was the stocking as my Mom would put all sorts of odds and ends in there and I would just be sooooooo excited…and naturally they were all wrapped – I could hardly wait to get the little goodies opened!

I hope that this post reminds you of “less is best” as it is the thought that counts that makes the difference! Guess what tomorrow is….YEP – BLOG CANDY….so I hope that you will pop back in because – WE LOVE OUR BLOG CANDY…and remember – “life is always better with friends”
